Gov Jerry Brown signed two new laws dealing with retainage and liability for subcontractors working in California.  SB 293 puts a 5% cap on funds that can be retained from subcontractors on state and local public contracts until 01/01/2016.  It also requires upper-tier contractors on public projects to pay lower tier contractors with in SEVEN days of receiving a progress payment.

SB 474 establishes a liability standard that holds each party responsible for only  the damage it causes as well as its defense cost for those damages.
